The joint graduate-level (MS and PhD) programs in Biomedical Engineering (BME) was established by University of North Dakota (UND) and North Dakota State University (NDSU). The BME programs are offered jointly by UND’s College of Engineering and Mines, UND’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and NDSU’s College of Engineering.
The BME programs provide opportunities for technically qualified persons to attain specialized knowledge in an area of industry need, and to enhance career opportunities. The MS would typically be a two-year program, and the PhD would nominally be a four-year program.
The objective of the BME program is to establish a jointly-sponsored, interdisciplinary graduate programs to:
- Meet the needs of regional students interested in biomedical engineering.
- Attract women and under-represented minorities into a developing field.
- Educate and train students through courses and research focused on biomedical research and device development.
- Advance the biomedical knowledge base through collaborative research directed by faculty from UND’s School of Medical and Health Sciences, College of Engineering and Mines, and NDSU’s College of Engineering and other qualified researchers from the two universities.
- Through biomedical research and device development, develop intellectual property to generate company spin-offs, attract new companies, and subsequent economic development.
